  • http://twitter.com/vazguard Asher S.

    I'm not sure if the VZN store here in Rochester is big enough to throw a party in…but I doubt the turnout will be very impressive. Then again, this is down the street from RIT.

  • 1bad69z28

    I wonder if you'll hear Star Wars Theme music playing in the stores and the employees dressed up as StormTroopers, with a little midget running around as Yoda lol

  • http://twitter.com/shakez David Thai

    what exactly is going on at the NYC location? WHat time does it start? will they actually be selling the units there?

    • kellex

      I haven't been given those details yet. :(

  • Spaceman

    I'm still on the fence about getting a Droid Incredible.
    Its so appealing yet should I wait for those 2 ghz phones?

  • socalrailroader

    The closest one to me is in Corte Madera, 110 miles south of my place (Redwood Valley), I think I'll skip the 2 hour drive each way tomorrow, though it looks cool and the party will be fun I'm sure!

  • pir800

          They should've launched this promotion on Halloween, that would've been worth the price of gas to go see all the freaks come out at night at your local Verizon store lol
